Winemaker Notes

Flint-inflected aromas of currant, mint, catnip and sweet flowers, a lusciously ripe palate of flowers, citrus, and bush fruits, and a long finish of lime, peppermint and chalk.

Critical Acclaim

RP 88
The Wine Advocate

I found Cailbourdin’s ostensibly lesser 2005 Pouilly-Fume Cuvee de Boisfleury the more generous of two cuvees, with flint-inflected aromas of currant, mint, catnip and sweet flowers, a lusciously ripe palate of flowers, citrus, and bush fruits, and a long finish of lime, peppermint and chalk.

This estate consists of 11 hectares at the northern edge of the Pouilly Fume appellation opposite Sancerre. A high proportion of old vines, between 25 and 50 years old, as well as a variety of soil types (chalk, clay and sandy alluvion) combine to produce exceptional wines… among the most exciting in the appellation. Low yields and optimum maturity of the grapes is part of the secret.
